The 23 Best Side Hustles for Teachers: Earn $1000 a Week or More

Teaching is a noble and rewarding profession, but it’s not the best-paying job in the world.

As a teacher you usually start with very low wages and have the burden of student debt, and so it’s only natural to look to side hustles or ways to make extra money outside of your chosen profession.

Liz Wilcox found herself at a crossroads.

With a growing email list of beginners wanting to learn about email marketing, she knew she wanted to find a way to step away from client work within a couple of years.

She had just signed a huge copywriting contract worth $20,000… her biggest one yet. But instead of excitement, all she felt was dread about the massive project she now had to take on.

And as a single parent, she knew the importance of creating a business that would support her lifestyle and allow her to be present for her family.

This is where the idea of “low cost = low responsibility” appealed to her, as it would allow her to serve her audience at while maintaining a manageable workload.
